EAA encompasses members engaged in a broad range of aviation pursuits, including recreational piloting, the restoration of vintage airplanes, and home aircraft building. One of the organization’s latest programs for youth aviation is AeroEducate. The program is web-based and for youth 5 to 18.
The program includes an array of turnkey and simplified aviation-related activities for EAA chapters and teachers and can be used in locations such as EAA chapter hangers and classrooms. Elements of AeroEducate include a badging program, career pathways, classroom activities, and a youth aviation activities database. The teaching activities under development for AeroEducate are free of charge and readily modifiable to current curricula. Development of the initiative is planned to progress through mid-2021.
